  • Bauman Farms
    Named the top pumpkin patch in Willamette Valley in 2011 by The Statesman Journal, the Bauman family has been sharing the soil's annual harvest with locals since 1894 through pumpkin patches and family-friendly autumn activities. After picking through gourds in search of the next jack-o'-lantern or latest replacement mannequin head, guests can visit vivacious livestock at the animal barn, defy gravity at the ziplines, and race through the obstacle course. A rock wall challenges visitors’ nimbleness, and the corn tunnels, playground, and tire castle tickle tykes' imaginations. Outdoor adventurers can take the barnyard experience home by picking up a homemade apple-caramel pie and fresh produce (not included in today’s Groupon) or by painting cow udders under dad's car.

  • Heiser Farms
    For John and Kristi Heiser, moving out to the farm in 1991 meant raising a family of self-sufficient kids. The farm began humbly enough, producing strawberries, melons, and a thriving pumpkin patch. Before long, folks in the surrounding area began to cotton on to the family-friendly atmosphere, and the homestead became a destination for school trips and weekend outings. With the recent acquisition and remodeling of a neighboring Dust Bowl-era barn, the Heisers started hosting social events. During harvest time, the farm whirs into high gear. A nostalgic John Deere trundles by, towing a train of hay-filled wagons. The Grand Island Railroad carts around passengers on its miniature train cars, much to the chagrin of squirrel commuters stuck at its crossings. Visitors forage in the pumpkin patches in search of one to take home, while amateur cannoneers shoot the spherical squash from air-powered devices. To infuse the farm with macabre fun during Halloween, the Heisers transform the pastoral corn maze into the haunt of spooky spirits.

  • Portland Aquarium
    Portland Aquarium, a December 2012 addition to Milwaukie, introduces visitors to thousands of waterborne species. Guests can slide their hands along the smooth flesh of a stingray or the knobby arms of a starfish or engage in staring contests with leopard sharks and jellyfish. Other exhibits include a cold-water tank filled with fish native to Oregon's coast and a rainforest-themed jungle gym for children. The tropical touch-tank woos visitors with its displays of vibrant-color aquatic life while amphibious wonders, including poison dart frogs, thrill visitors. Those seeking bigger thrills may visit the ball pythons and bearded dragons or get their picture taken with a lorikeet. Land-loving iguanas also lurch around in the mix.

  • Wild Arts Festival
    Audubon Society of Portland's mission was solidified in 1902, when a few like-minded conservationists came together to found the organization. In their own words, this group set out "to use any and all lawful means for the protection of the wild birds and animals for the State of Oregon and elsewhere." Their first success came quickly, when the Society helped pass the Model Bird Law in 1903, which protected native birds from being shot and sold. Since then, the Society has advocated for countless creatures, from northern spotted owls to wild salmon, the latter of which kind of look like birds if you squint really hard. Today, the Society stands more than 14,000 strong. The support of these members helps maintain nature sanctuaries with hiking trails, fund educational initiatives, and run a care center. The care center is an especially vital resources, as it rehabilitates approximately 3,000 animals every year and responds to thousands of wildlife-related injuries.

  • Bella Organic Farm
    Along a 100-acre parcel of land on Sauvie Island, Bella Organic Farm and Winery's farmers tend to and oversee a huge variety of certified organic crops. Throughout the year, the land yields harvests of juicy blueberries, summer squash, herbs, and 20 types of pumpkins in the fall, though not the magical kind that turns into carriages. Visitors to the farm store will find the shelves stocked with baskets of freshly picked fruits and vegetables, as well as jams, syrups, and pickles. Depending on the season, U-Pick crops invite families to wander through the fields and gather their own blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and pumpkins.
